    Hello,

    I have a PC with three partitions on SATA master drive 1. I installed
    three OSs in this order (all x64): XP, Vista Ultimate, Server2008.
    They multiboot perfectly.

    I also have a second drive, a standard IDE Maxtor 320 GB as an IDE
    master. It contains about 250 GB of important data. I set up the
    second drive using Vista.

    I can't write to it when I boot into XP. I've tried to write to
    several directories. I always get this error message:

    Disk N: is write-protected
    A file cannot be saved on a write-protected disk

    XP has also called it "Disk T:"

    It isn't write protected, AFAIK. My best guess is this error is
    caused by permission incompatibilities between XP and Vista.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you

    Ray
